Launched around this time last year, Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier 2 is the newest model of its range of air purifiers. And now, considering the alarming levels of pollution in India, especially the capital city, Xiaomi has slashed the prices of its air purifier. After a Rs 1,000 cut in price, the Mi Air Purifier 2 now costs Rs 8,999. It is available at the reduced price on Flipkart and mi.com.

As compared to its predecessor, the Mi Air Purifier 2 is 40 percent smaller. It comes with a 360-degree cylindrical filter that takes air more efficiently from every direction compared to other air purifiers out there. It can quickly remove PM2.5 dust particles from unclean air conditioners, indoor plant pollen, pet hair and germs. It can even filter out unpleasant odours from your room. Xiaomi says the Mi Air Purifier 2 can circulate purified air in just about 10 minutes in a 21 square meter room.

In terms of specifications, the Mi Air Purifier 2 s setup includes a single motor with dual mixed booster fans and a three layer filter (PET Pre-filter, EPA filter and activated carbon filter). Each filter lasts up to six months depending on usage, and each replacement filter sets you back by Rs 2,499. You can purchase it from Mi.com and replacing it is pretty simple. Xiaomi says that the Mi Air Purifier 2 offers Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 310m3/h. The company also says that it is 11 percent quieter with lowest noise level at 30db, and 58 percent more power efficient compared to its predecessor.

Then the Mi Air Purifier 2 has something called Smart functionality, which is essentially a built-in Wi-Fi that connects the device with the home network. Using the Mi Home App on your Android or iOS smartphone, a user can remotely turn it on or off, and even control remotely. The app lets one monitor and control the home air quality, temperature sensor, humidity sensor and control the fan speed too. It can also send reminders to change filters, when needed. While you can use mobile internet on your smartphone to control the device remotely, you need to make sure that the air purifier at home or anywhere is connected to the internet for this to work.
